How to Drink in Spring, Weds 27th & Thurs 28th April 2011
Victoria Moore has been writing about drinking since 1998 when she began a column in the New Statesman. She is now the wine writer for the Telegraph, and previously wrote the wine column for the Guardian Saturday Weekend magazine. Her bestselling book – How to Drink – is a hugely readable and beautiful handbook that aims to inform, entertain and ensure you are never without the perfect drink for every occasion.
We are running a series of seasonal drinks classes, starting with Spring. You will be guided through a tasting of several of Victoria’s favourite Rieslings, which will highlight the differences between German and New World versions and sweeter and drier styles. We will test and discuss the interaction of food and wine on the palate, and Victoria will explain how to pair food with white wines. Moving on to cocktails, we’ll taste a series of rums and make the ultimate daiquiri before learning all about Campari and its role in numerous cocktails. The class will end with a round of Victoria’s signature cocktail – the very delicious Baby Joe. We’ll keep you fed with snacks throughout the class and send you home with a pack of Victoria’s recommendations and recipes.
